Hi,

Does anyone know why the anime show: Seven Deadly Sins season 2 is not on crunchy?
The show is airing a.t.m. already to episode 7 or 8.

Hope anyone knows.

Because Netflix has it and they usually don't release an anime until after it's aired. They did the same for season 1.

I would agree Phantom but Netflix originally only had rights tot he dubbed version. The first season was released on Crunchyroll originally

Maybe it's because CR hates us and doesn't want to provide the shows we want. But maybe it's simply due to the way licensing content for streaming works. There are multiple streaming services all bidding on the same content. Competing amongst each other to secure the rights to the best/most popular/most profitable shows. Some of them work out deals with this or that distributor with giving them exclusive rights to stream particular properties. And all that bidding and deal-making happens behind closed doors. We never learn the details of any of these licensing arrangements.

It would be really freaking strange if a single streaming service got every single show available. It's only natural that some shows are found here, and others there.

And yeah, I'm getting kind of tired of these threads asking basically the same thing over and over: Why doesn't streaming service X carry show Y? The answer is always: licensing.

You can subscribe to Crunchyroll and Funimation and Hulu and Netflix and Amazon Prime, getting just about every anime series legally available, and still pay less than half of what you would to get 200 channels of crap on cable or satellite tv. Stop complaining. Getting your anime these days is an embarrassment of riches.

It's on Netflix or rather it will be in an eternity. Now that Netflix is funding anime production there will be more shows that will never find their way over to CR/Funi. Netflix still does this weird thing where they sit on simulcast licenses, stupid yes I know.
Well read between the lines and figure out where to go from here.

Kinda a shame since Netflix has really good video quality and cheap subscription model if you share with others in your household. Hopefully they get their act together and either simulcast or push for international releases at the same time because let's be honest most of us aren't going to wait until after all of the spoilers have been flooding the net for 3-6 months before it finally "releases".

While true, if the anime streaming industry continues its licensing fragmenting I expect that widespread piracy like in the "fansub" era will be on its way back. While getting 2-3 subscriptions is not that unreasonable if things get to the point where we need 7,8,9, 10 subscriptions to get the full simulcast catalog I can't see many people ponying up that type of money for long.

Heck I have subscriptions to all of those you listed other than Hulu since paying for a service that still has advertisements continues to be a real head-scratcher for me and the other 3 combined basically covers everything I care about. Anyhow you make a good point.
